This research aims to explore teachers’ experiences of having to abandon the traditional classroom for home-based teaching during COVID-19s period of rapid and unprecedented change.
The research team would like to invite teachers from independent schools to participate in this research. Participation would involve construction of a short PhotoVoice digital narrative – a visual/verbal story created through video of photographs, and accompanied by a verbal/written story about the images. It is anticipated that construction of the digital narrative would take around 30 minutes and they would then be submitted to the research data collection portal.
Stories will be analysed to reveal how this change impacted on teachers’ identity as teachers. This includes their understanding of teaching, what they did, how they related to others as well as conditions enabling or constraining them during the time of remote learning.
Please contact the researchers directly if you are interested in participating in this research.
